Manufactured exclusively for Rio in the USA by Swanstrom, this high-quality disc cutter set features tools made of hardened and tempered, shock-resistant tool steel with precision-ground surfaces. Spring-loaded die plate allows you to easily open and close according to the thickness being punched. Designed for soft materials up to 16 gauge (1.29mm) when using a hammer and up to 10 ga. (2.59mm) when using a Bonny Doon hydraulic press. IMPORTANT: Always position a shim of the same thickness of the material being cut directly across from that material to keep the plates balanced and ensure a perfectly perpendicular cut. Die sizes are 1/8" to 1-1/4" (1/8" increments); all are 2" tall. • This set includes: a two-pate cutter block, 10 dies, an Allen wrench, and a strong rubber base (5-7/8"-dia.) that conveniently holds the cutter and dies . • Use a urethane square (1/16" thick, 95 durometer; not included) under the cutters as a support as you cut; the urethane absorbs the energy of the hammer blow, protecting the cutters and the work surface and ensuring a clean, sharp cut.
please note: • Protect the surfaces of your punches by using only brass-head mallets to strike them when cutting. • Always use Bur-Life® on the cutting edges of your punches to keep them cutting cleanly and efficiently for years to come.
